Hello -
No this isn't true. Some women do claim their temperature increases by a few degrees when they conceive but there is no actual medical proof of this. During the evening the basal body temperature will of increased. The BBT (Basal body temp) will also increase during your ovulation time, period time, after having hot food or drink and when your feeling a bit under the weather.
A increase in temperature isn't exactly pregnancy related hun. Wait till your period is due. If it doesnt arrive - then test.
Trish - you seem to be misguided and I'm afraid you are wrong, or rather your answer is incomplete and ill informed. Your temperature can of course indicate pregnancy IF there is a substained rise for 16 days or more past your ovulation, that does not drop or plummet. Visit a site that tells you everything about charting your way to conception. Of course other things can influence your temperature, BUT if you take your temperature at the same time each day BEFORE you get out of bed and move around, aswell as charting other fertility signs like Cervical Fluid and Cervical Position, you will feel empowered to learn all about the ups and downs of your own body, an overall picture will form giving you very accurate information about fertile times, non fertile times, and indicators that pregnancy has been achieved. Of course you take a HPT to confirm this. I would strongly advise you and the asker of this question to visit so that you can improve your knowledge and better advise others in future. It is medically proven by the way, ask your doctor. Have fun !
